Lots 12 & 13 Seagull Dr

Two Cayo Costa Island building lots within a quick ride to miles of pristine, virtually uninhabited beaches. The island is home to a wide variety of wildlife and is primarily owned by the state of Florida. Building lots that are still privately owned are scarce. These properties are the perfect place to build a sustainable off-the-grid island home. Gulf & Bay views are possible from a lookout level, plus panoramic views of the natural beauty of Cayo Costa Island. This neighborhood typically requires no easements to be purchased from the state, making it one of the best subdivisions to build on Cayo Costa.

What do you buy land on Cayo Costa Island for?

Owning any piece of land can create a store of value. It is a peace of mind that when all else fails, you can at least move to an island, sit on the beach, and relax. This can become almost an “Escape Clause” for your life, challenging you to keep up the fast paced everyday life just to meet the challenges and goals you have set aside; long term dreams of a quiet and easy living in a perfect location.

With hopes of developing land in the future or creating a homestead for future generations, the choice to build a vacation home or residence along the coast is not for everyone. The bridge free and off-the grid status of the island is what draws all of the owners to it. The protection from landscapes changing and evolving too fast comes from this vital disconnection with the mainland.

One of the main focus points of being an island owner is that you are not fitting into a cookie cutter mold or reaching out to find any semblance of “sameness” with the Florida Peninsula parcels. Not every house on Cayo Costa will look the same, this allows each owner to buy a property and make it their own. Take a step out of the rat race to go to an island and have the tides and sunsets just wipe the slate clean.

What does Cayo Costa have to offer?

The miles of beaches beckon when you are anywhere on the isle. The pristine Gulf shore and surrounding back waters sparkle in the sun. Gentle rolling waves surround you constantly with the sounds of surf and the scents of the sea air carry on the gentle ocean breezes.
Fishing from along the shores and from vessels in the surrounding waters is top notch. World famous and prize winning contests are held each year for Tarpons, Snook fish, and many other popular fish. For the recreational fisher folk, hours of enjoyment are in store and the gleaming beauty of the local fresh catches is a sight to behold.

There is a very small community on Cayo Costa Island made up of property owners, partial year residents, and full-time island residents. There is a park service ranger station on the northern section of the island as well as ferry service to that area. Some areas of the island are inter-connected by "roads" aka sandy paths leading to various parts of the island and homes. Some areas of the island are not connected to this system of paths and are very private ideallic settings, but not as easily accessible if you rely upon ferry access to the island.
